Lough Ree, Shannon System, Lanesborough/Ballyleague, The Midlands, Ireland 5th to 9th October 2016

The 2016 FIPS-ed 9th World Championships Boat Angling with Lures will take place in Lanesborough/Ballyleague, in the midlands of Ireland where there is a population of around 1400 people in the locality. Situated on the shores of Lough Ree the area lays geographical claim to the centre of Ireland and is in the heart of the Irish Lakelands region. Here our anglers will be rewarded with the Irish hospitality as can be shown by a small community in rural Ireland whilst experiencing the good fishing on both Lough Ree and the Shannon River.

There is a good range of self-catering and hotel accommodation in the area to choose from with some in the immediate locality and others a 15 to 30 minutes’ drive away.  The lough itself narrows at Athlone, a 25 to 30 minute drive away, a buzzing town with all the activities and accommodation of a city.

Running in parallel with the championships is an International Food Festival ‘Taste of the Lakelands’ sharing local produce and culinary skills from the region.  Something for all the family!
